Clint Chelf was not effective throwing the football against Iowa State on Saturday, going 10-of-26 for just 78 yards, one touchdown and one interception.
What does Chelf need to improve moving forward? Mechanics? Making the correct reads?
When asked on his Sunday media teleconference, coach Mike Gundy would not offer specifics.
“Not anything,” Gundy said. “I mentioned this the other day, it doesn't benefit us a team or him individually for me to talk publicly about specifics with any player. There are just things that everybody on the team at all positions need to work on, and that's what we will continue to do.”
Later, Gundy was asked about running back Desmond Roland, who exploded for 219 yards and four touchdowns against the Cyclones in his first career start. Is it safe to assume he will remain the No. 1 back?
“Again, I don't necessarily want to talk about personnel and what our plans are,” Gundy said.
KLIFF KINGSBURY ENCOURAGING COSTUMES FOR OSU GAME
Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury wants the Red Raider students to get weird.
He said as much on Twitter, posting the following tweet Sunday afternoon in advance of the Cowboys' visit to Lubbock Saturday night:
“To all of our amazing TTU students, let's see how crazy we can get in the Jones Saturday night! Costumes encouraged ... #letsgetweird #Wreckem”
GUNDY RECOGNIZES FAMILIAR PLAY IN TCU-TEXAS GAME
With OSU's early kickoff time against Iowa State, Gundy was back home with plenty of time to watch prime time sports.
He flipped back and forth between Game 3 of the World Series and the Texas-TCU game, because his sons were arguing about which sport to watch. And he didn't make it to the end of the contest between the Horned Frogs and Longhorns, which ended well after midnight because of a three-plus-hour weather delay.
Gundy did recognize one play from that game, however.
“You know the wheel route we threw out here to Josh Stewart against TCU?” Gundy said. “(Texas ran) the same play, and they hit it for a touchdown. That was the last play I saw.”
